What we're about

We are a group of civic hackers, technologists, public servants, and community leaders in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis, St. Paul, and metro area) focused on improving the technology of our cities. We are a Code for America Brigade (http://brigade.codeforamerica.org/).

See our Mission Statement and Goals (https://www.opentwincities.org/about/) for more information.

Please join us if you have any interest or curiosity in experimenting with new technologies that address community or civic needs, or wish to discuss how a new or improved technology can help the community we live in.

For discussion, please join the Open Twin Cities Slack workspace (https://otc-slackin.herokuapp.com/).

Upcoming events (5)

Open Twin Cities Monthly Meetup (Remote)

Online event

This meeting will be an open lab time where we will work on projects. All skillsets and skill levels are welcome! We are a group that is dedicated to helping each other learn and explore things related to civic technology, open government, and open data. Come with ideas for projects or things you may have already started, or just bring yourself and we'll help match you up with an already existing project, idea, or dataset to explore.

We will group up into breakout rooms if there are projects/topics that folks want to dive deeper into. If you have a project/topic you'd like to discuss, please feel free to add it to the agenda ahead of time.

Please wear headphones when connecting to the remote meeting to help avoid audio feedback. Feel free to chat us on Slack (https://otc-slackin.herokuapp.com/) if you have technical difficulties connecting and we'll do our best to help you get up and running.
